In this outfit dashes of ochre in the skirt and green necklace keeps it from being too predictable.
This outfit consists of some favorite pieces in my wardrobe. The skirt is in one of my all time favorite J.Crew prints. I was examining the details and sadly, it may be one of the last instances where the lining is in acetate and the hem is over 2 inches wide in case you want to let it down. I remember when most J.Crew skirts and dresses were made this way, but it seems a distant memory now.
The jacket is J.Crew Stretch denim jacket. It is very similar cut as Nolita denim jacket but it has more stretch in it (90% cotton, 8% Polyamide and 2% Elastane). It has a clean medium blue wash, very classic. It fits well and it is very soft. It is nicely defined in the chest and nipped in the waist. I am wearing size Medium and I would say it runs rather small. Last time I tried Nolita jacket I was in between sizes, but this one I don;t think I could button in Small.
I didn't wear a denim jacket for quite a long time, but I love this one. I always thought that any time I would like to wear a denim jacket, I would already be in jeans and I was not totally sold on denim-on-denim look, even with fancy heels. But I realized that with its cropped shape, this jacket will be fun with colorful skirts or over dresses. Plus, it is soooo comfortable.
